with asean, singapore, japan and korea. and we're also in dialogue with the eu. we have been talking about a bilateral investment treaty, but not necessarily with a due sense of urgency. for meeting since negotiations started in 2007 does not suggest a great deal of haste. much as it might surprise, we want this as much as you did because it is also of interest to us. ladies and gentlemen, important as they are, market access issues, and goods and services, and i to be seen perspective for they can be made to define narrative. why we must work to sort out these challenges, it is not in our interest to let such issues define the relationship. this is why we have proposed to create an ad hoc clearinghouse mechanism to discuss market access issues in the trade policy forum. i believe that we also need to find a new positive narrative that can bind our countries closer together. one such opportunity i feel is in the energy sector. without a shirt access to energy inputs in sufficient quantities, we will not be able to sustain our economic development. therefore, an enduring in the u.s. partner
-- not pipeline, partnership. he announced the united states was ready to begin negotiations with europe on a u.s.-eu trade ownership. we could not agree more. let's hurry up and put american business to work. let's get these deals done. by the way, it is not just about asia. it includes all the coasts of the united states and canada and america. it is fascinating. we need to get this going and move that european deal. the working group is about to put out a report. i think it will probably sustain the best teams we can think about. let me give you this in a minute. europe is in a slow economy. europe is our largest export partner. europe is china's largest export your. china is our fastest growing export partner. if europe goes into the can, the whole triangle goes in the can. that is a bad idea. this would be huge on both sides of the pond. there are a lot of big trade agreements that have been talked about for a long time. these would put cash on the table right now. it is important that we welcome global investment. we want people to bring their cash here. come here and invest or come here and vi
of the other things i did want to touch about, and these drug shortages, 50eu6 got to tell you, this affidavit just came from tucson and from the northeast, so it's not specific just to rural or urban areas. these are critical shortages that have to be addressed, and i don't like that -- i don't think that the hypothesis or the conclusions you come to are real. i think we're actually worse shortages. just because we put out a report doesn't mean that we've remedied it. we've actually made some of the problems even worse for the gray market. now we understand where we hoard, where we take, where we increase the sales. so we've got a huge problem here. to go back to my colleague, mr. chaffetz, in federal properties. i want to give you a real clear example of federal properties that have a problem. we just got back from a codell in regards to the state department looking at our embassies, and in particular i want to highlight morocco. here we are spending over $150 million building a new embassy in morocco, and we have yet to assay and look at what the value and possibility of sale of our current

need to try to find one with regard to the application of the eu verify the agriculture. lastly i just want to note that we do support, unlike the president's bill, the abdication of e-verify to the entire work force. is building the exhibit something like 60% of all employers. and lastly, i just want to note that we have strongly supported e-verify as part of competence of immigration reform. will continue to do so. our four-plex and border security, more visas for the high skilled lesser skilled agriculture, arrival employment verification system, and the means to bring the undocumented out of the shadows and give them something legal status in this country. and not blocking a pathway to citizenship. thank you for your consideration, mr. chairman. >> accuser. ms. tulli. >> chairman gowdy, ranking member lofgren, and members of the subcommittee, chairman gowdy, ranking member lofgren, and members of the subcommittee, thank you for this opportunity to share the national immigration law center's perspective on e-verify. the national immigration law center has advocate for changes to e-v
